>> this week on moyers & company. >> fundamentally barack obama's pretty conservative. he really is. he's an eisenhower conservative. he's not a liberal. >> i agree 100 percent. i mean, obama has been -- i'm always shocked when people call obama a socialist, because he's -- in fact, i think you might be doing a disservice to eisenhower. >> and -- >> if i can choose to be grateful for my life, love the life i have in the midst of all this, then i can be grateful for other things. >> funding is provided by: carnegie corporation of new york, celebrating 100 years of philanthropy, and committed to doing real and permanent good in the world. the kohlberg foundation. independent production fund, with support from the partridge foundation, a john and polly guth charitable fund. the clements foundation. park foundation, dedicated to heightening public awareness of critical issues. the herb alpert foundation, supporting organizations whose mission is to promote compassion and creativity in our society. the bernard and audre rapoport foundation. the john d. and catherine t. macarthur foundati

. and so i think they're trying to fend that off. bill moyers: obama campaigned on higher rates. and he won. why can't republicans come to terms with that that's how the election came out? yves smith: the republicans have become very dedicated to the idea that taxes in any form are bad. that when, in fact, there are times when taxes can fund productive investments and actually, again, lead to more economic growth. but it's the republicans and ironically, wall street, have basically adopted the same strategy of being non-negotiable. that if they have a blocking position, and they feel that they have a blocking position by virtue of their majority in the house, that they're going to take advantage of it. so regardless of what the election said, if they can stymie a deal to their own advantage, they will. >> given what both of you are saying, why are we talking about reducing the deficit instead of creating jobs? because when people have jobs, they spend money. when they spend money, businesses have customers. when they have customers, the money keeps circulating. and yet washington isn't talk

expecting the voting, the sort of, the electoral body that made obama's victory possible. i mean, i think there was -- no one was talking about the sort of numbers that showed up for obama. no one was predicting the diversity of the vote. no one was predicting that sort of the republican strategy for securing a romney victory would come to grief so kind of spectacularly. i mean, i'm telling you. even the communities who came out to vote, i think, were shocked by their own numbers and by their own power. i mean, when you look at the cuban community in florida, a community that has historically voted super conservative and suddenly see an entirely new generation voting, and you see those numbers that they put up for obama. it was extraordinary. and i think that a lot of folks have very poor sense of what's happening in this country on the ground. i mean, they're kind of all the way up here, whether it's age, class, institutional divisions. and they don't really have a real kind of panoramic or even a deep view of the real sort of granular shifts that have occurred in this country, that have

and manipulation and maneuvering. and barack obama, who i admire immensely, had to give the public option up and hand certain concessions to people like bart stupak in order to get the affordable care act through. and i thought that was lincolnian. he had to say for four years, "i'm evolving towards same sex marriage," before he could say, "i believe in same sex marriage." but you knew of course barack obama in 2007 understood the difference between secular marriage and religious marriage. and of course he believed that gay men and lesbians should marry on the same equal legal footing. he couldn't say it then. and he took four years. and when he picked the moment to say it, it was the exact perfect moment to say it. and it worked and it happened. and it's a history changing thing. >> i was going to ask you about that, i'm glad you brought it up, i was going to ask you because you and your partner, your husband, were the first gay married couple to appear in the new york times vows column. yet, here was obama whom you were supporting cautious, holding back, letting others take the lead, not s

to the job by president barack obama. now, the fcc tried to pull this same stunt under a republica chairman back in the second term of george w. bush, but at hearings held around the country an angry public fought back. >> we told you a year ago when you came to seattle that media consolidation is a patently bad idea. no "ifs," "ands," or "buts" about it. so with all due respect i ask you, what part of that didn't you understand? >> i'm a republican and i'm a capitalist, but some areas of our private sector must be regulated. freedom of information is too important, we must be oactive in protecting that fundamental freedom. >> if the fcc is here wanting to know if chicago's residents are being wewell served, the answers no. if local talent is being covered, the answer is no. if community issues are being treated sensitively, the answer is no. if minority groups are getting the coverage and input that they need, the answer is no. the answer is no. >> if you will not stand up for we the people, then i have news for you. we the people are standing up for ourselves. this is our media, and we ar
